VH1 Returns With Its Original Scripted Broadband Series 'Home Purchasing Club'

Season Two Launches on VSPOT and Its Companion Syndicated Player on Monday, April 16

New Season Features Stars From 'Saturday Night Live,' 'Whose Line Is It Anyway,' 'Drew Carey's Improv All Stars,' 'The Office' and 'Curb Your Enthusiasm'

NEW YORK, March 27 -- VH1 has renewed its original broadband series, "Home Purchasing Club" for a second season. Called "uproariously funny" by TV Guide, the series returns with eight new episodes exclusively on VSPOT, VH1's broadband channel and its companion syndicated player beginning April 16. New episodes will launch weekly.

VSPOT's original scripted broadband series, "Home Purchasing Club," takes an edgy and irreverent look at home shopping channels with memorable segments like "Kid's Corner" and "Men's Hygiene forum." With brand new episodes launching every week, there's no doubt that fans will be hooked on these "must have" items. In addition to the ensemble cast from season one, this season welcomes Jeff Garlin and David Koechner best known for their roles on "Curb Your Enthusiasm" and "The Office," respectively.

"Home Purchasing Club" is available on demand on VSPOT and on the VSPOT syndicated player, which offers users and Web publishers the ability to "snag" the player and VSPOT content for their own sites. A differentiating feature on the player is its ability to be dynamically updated with new content. When a user snags an episode of "Home Purchasing Club," a new episode will automatically update in the player the following week and will be available alongside the originally "snagged" episode. The VSPOT syndicated player also offers search and "send-to-a-friend" capabilities providing users with an easy and accessible way to watch and share episodes of "Home Purchasing Club" and other VSPOT content.
